correspondent brianna keilar is live for us this morning from washington. john boehner was the guy who said he didn't think a lame duck congress could do big things. what can be done in the next, what did i say, 53 days? >> well, maybe finding some sort of stopgap measure. some sort of framework on tax reform, soledad. i think that's the goal here. the fact is, house republicans and president obama and senate democrats, they don't really have a choice. they have to do something, and that became very clear yesterday when the cbo put out a report showing that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff you're looking at economic calamity. you're looking at unemployment ticking up, perhaps two points. you're looking at a recession next year. so, also listen to the conciliatory language that we're hearing from the hill and that we may be hearing from president obama when he speaks here at the white house this afternoon. listen to what john boehner also said about being reasonable. >> we can talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washing

washington, d.c. so, brianna, i guess you have this fiscal cliff, that the administration is dealing with, at the same time you have this unfolding scandal. how is the administration, or has the administration really been dragged into the scandal? >> it's certainly been a distraction. if you watched the white house press briefing yesterday you could see almost all of the questions revolved around this scandal involving generals petraeus and allen. so we know that. certainly. but, jay carney, the white house press secretary, was downplaying this was a distraction, saying the president is still very much focused on the fiscal cliff. we do know, however, that this situation has taken some of the president's time, a limited amount of time, carney said. but at the same time, we know that a lot of staff hours get dedicated to something like this kind of scandal. meantime, carney said that president obama still thinks very highly of general allen. he said that he thinks highly of the job that he's done in afghanistan, and of his service. here's what he said yesterday. the first time that carney

obama's offer? >> cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is live for us in washington, d.c. what do you make of his comments? >> soledad, look, bill kristol is not an elected official. he doesn't get a vote. but he is a very influential gop voice here in washington. and around the country. and for him to tell republicans it wouldn't kill to them to agree to tax increases for millionaires. it's a big deal. and we heard some similar talk from republicans who do have a vote like senator bob corker. listen to this. >> i think there is a deal, once the yin and yang, we know there has to be revenues. look, i haven't met a wealthy republican or democrat in tennessee that's not willing to contribute more as long as they know we solve the problem. >> and, soledad, now for the but. the but is that sounds conciliatory, and it is but the two sides are still not close on how to cut a deal on any tax increases. for the most part republicans are still opposed to raising tax rates for the wealthiest americans and democrats, led by the president, said this over and over in the campaign, s

this morning. she's in our washington, d.c. bureau. good morning, jill. >> hello, soledad. well, this is it. both sides are going to be there. they're looking at the tone. they're looking at the president, what kind of tone will he set? you have to say that they're coming in both sides with their essential positions intact. all, both sides are saying that there is some room for a compromise. so, the essential thing is how do you compromise? if you look at the positions, let's say, of the republicans, and it's most strongly, as i say, relayed by senator mitch mcconnell, he does not, and they do not, want any tax increases. so let's listen to him first. >> and let's be clear, an opening bid of $1.6 trillion of new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson-bowles or any other bipartisan commission has called for. it's been unanimously rejected in the house and senate, it's twice as much as the white house seemed ready to agree to during last summer's debt ceiling talks and look at it in the context of the spending cuts that are yet to be enacted from the president's other proposal, it a

for the update. >>> let's get to washington now, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lot

talked about the campaign heating up again. and if you look at a poll from abc news,/"washington post," the question was, likely voters' views to the response to hurricane sandy, president obama was excellent or good, 78%, not so good or poor, 8%. no opinion was relatively high for governor romney. mark preston thinks that the president's handling of this disaster will lead directly to more votes for him. do you agree? >> i think it's quite possible. the president is doing what the president does best. i mean, you've heard governor christie say that he had talked to the president six times, and when he got together with him, he could feel the compassion that he felt over the phone. and that says a lot. here we have two men, who truly care about their country, coming together. and i think that's basically what america wants. they're tired, soledad, of all the bickering and nothing getting done. and the fact is that they came together, and i think that the president has taken the appropriate action. i'm very impressed. >> let's take a look at the battleground states and the polls that c

is in the interest of the state of massachusetts. and we need more independent thinkers like that in washington. people who will be against special interest. this much lobbying is also really impairing the ability to decision make. >> michael bloomberg is supporting scott brown in that race for exactly the same reason because he said he supports independent thinkers. >> i think they do have two good candidates. but i know elizabeth well and i think she will be independent. i think if you look at her sources of campaign support, she's got a huge base of small donors. she really is smart and she'll be a player from day one if she gets elected. looks like she will. >> out on the edge supporting a democrat. >> for the first time -- >> yes, yes, yes. let's get to some other stories making news. >> all right, soledad. hard numbers in the aftermath of superstorm sandy are just so great. 92 americans dead, 3.5 million power customers still in the dark. estimated losses up to $50 billion. a lot of residents if hard-hit staten island, new york, they're just very angry that the new york city marathon will
